Transfer Window Looms Closer

Last updated : 25 July 2018 By Footy Mad - Editor

Newcastle have hardly spent the money Mike Ashley promised in May, with some suggesting there was never any money available.

Ashley promised £50m plus all the money generated in sales.

Rafa has signed Sung-Yeung Ki on a free transfer from relegated Swansea, while Kenedy has returned to St James' Park on loan from Chelsea. They have also made Martin Dubravka's loan from Sparta Prague permanent for £3.6m.

Magpies boss Rafa Benitez is confident he will be able to further strengthen his squad before the window closes on August 9.
